Unattended Children’s Policy
In order to provide for the general welfare of all persons using the library and in order to provide for the general safety of children using the library:
- All children in Grades 2 and under shall at all time be attended and adequately supervised by a responsible person (e.g. an adult or responsible person over the age of 16).
- Children in Grades 3 through 6 may use the Children’s Library when unaccompanied, provided that a responsible person remains in the library building.
- Parents, not library staff, are responsible for children’s behavior in the library. Children deemed out of control or disruptive to other patrons will be asked to leave.
It is not the library’s function to offer child care. The Library will contact the Nassau County Police if children are left unattended in the library.
